Teen Mental Health Forum

Teen Mental Health Forum will bring together a diverse group of leaders that represent the education community, health industry, youth services, faith-based organizations and many others, to talk about issues affecting local youth, to learn more about existing programs, and to identify ways that collaborative efforts can support and help those "on the ground."  We are aware of the work that you and your organization are involved in regarding youth and we hope you will join us to share information, exchange resources and broaden the network of professionals who are working to help the next generation.   
 
The Teen Mental Health Roundtable Series is a service project of the L.E.E.P To College Foundation, Inc.  The purpose of these meetings is to help “connect the dots” by facilitating the collective work of youth advocates, youth-serving organizations, and youth themselves, along with parents as their partners in reform on a local level.  In the process, the Foundation is gathering information and identifying programs that might be used as models for adoption nationwide.  Ultimately, the Foundation hopes to meet the following goals: 
 

  • To collect information on what is already being done for at-risk youth and teen mental health within the community and create an online resource and teen mental summit for teens; 
  • To exchange information about services, share programming ideas, and otherwise expand the overall network of  youth advocates:
  • To identify stakeholders that can use their influence to improve public policy, education/awareness/prevention campaigns:
  • To explore how this collaboration can be used to propose enhancements in programs and  policy that help increase mentally healthy teens.

Service Learning Training and Workshop

Service learning is different than community service in several key ways. Service learning includes student leadership, reflective and academic components, and chances for celebration once the service activity has been successfully completed. Students reflect on community needs, ways to help, and once their service has been completed, they can internalize how their efforts have helped, while learning more about academics such as geography, math, or science.

This workshop will provide essential training and support for successful service to others throughout the L.E.E.P College Serving Those Who Deserve program.
